Star Mag -- Katie Holmes AIN'T No Drug Addict

4/27/2011 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Star Magazine just issued a MASSIVE mea culpa to Katie Holmes -- publishing an apology on the COVER of its latest issue ... after the tabloid printed a headline suggesting Katie was a drug addict.

Katie Holmes Star Magazine
Katie filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against the magazine last month, claiming Star's January headline -- "ADDICTION NIGHTMARE! Katie DRUG SHOCKER! -- was "untrue, unethical and unlawful."

Katie's rep tells TMZ, the lawsuit is now water under the bridge ... that it's been settled ... and Star's publisher American Media even made a "substantial" donation to Katie's charity.

As for Star's in-mag apology -- it reads in part, “Star did not intend to suggest that Ms. Holmes was a drug addict or was undergoing treatment for a drug addiction.  Star apologizes to Ms. Holmes for any misperception ..."

Katie released her own statement today, saying, “I’m pleased that this lawsuit could be resolved amicably and accept American Media’s apology.”

It's pretty obvious from all the picture of Katie since her wedding that she is not a happy young woman. She looks miserable and the pictures capture that. Drugged? Probably not. Unutterable unhappy - probably.

Good for Katie for not letting this go- the media will do anything to sell crap and it's not fair to lie about people's character.

Remarkable how quick Cruise is to defend that daffy organization he belongs to (I refuse to call it a "religion")but will not defend his little girl from the horrible press she has had. Paps took pics of this child with candy shaped like a penis and wrote horrible headlines about it, they take pics of her in Canada where it is illegal to photograph minors without their parents written permission unless it is at a busy public venue and various outlets have implied Suri is ill-behaved. One has to wonder why it is okay to exploit his daughter but not his reli...cult...organization. Oh wait, that keeps his heterosexual married with children identity veeerry public doesn't it?

I want to know WHERE IS JENNIFER ANNISTON'S BABY? In January your magazine said she was pregnant. Haven't seen that kid! That's because you make up crap to sell magazines. Just like the article about Katie Holmes being a druggie. Good grief. Glad she sued. More stars should.
